Biography:
I began my journey into the field of physical therapy in high school.  My grandfather had a severe stroke that left his right side paralyzed and hindered a very active man.  With strong determination and the help of his physical therapist, he was able to make a full recovery.  I was amazed at his progress and became very interested in the occupation that was able to have such a dramatic effect on his life.  After further investigation and understanding the diversity of patients, including athletes, that a Physical Therapist was responsible for, I knew this career would be perfect for me.

After high school, I enrolled at Oakland University with aspirations of studying to become a physical therapist.  While at OU, I worked as a student assistant to the Head Athletic Trainer.  The experience in the training room helped me develop my knowledge base to further my career as a Therapist and introduced me to many influential professionals in the field.

Following graduation, I found work in an independent PT clinic close to OU where I was able to consult and treat patients form Oakland University’s Division IA Athletic Department.  This experience gave me the backbone for my treatment philosophy.  Here I was able to take an injured player and provide the care needed to get that player back in the game.  Although this job was very rewarding, I had other goals to obtain.

With the goal of running my own facility in mind, I began to research possible opportunities.  When I discovered HealthQuest, I found a company with an excellent reputation in both the public and physical therapy community.  I decided that I wanted to be a part of this type of company, and put all my efforts in securing a position.  I have now been practicing since 2003, and I am proud to be part of the HealthQuest family.

I believe that the only way to continue to give my patients the best quality care is through furthering my education and experience and using that information to tailor a unique treatment plan for each patient.  In May 2010, I completed Oakland University’s program in Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapy (OMPT).  I have also taken courses in Myokinematics and have been introduced to various treatment techniques at the HealthQuest quarterly meetings.  I have a strong background in sport and orthopedic rehabilitation, with an emphasis on manual therapy and exercise and I am excited for every new challenge that walks through the door!
